Float Pod Therapy: Who Knew?

One of the great things about trying to live your life green, clean, and holistic is that you are naturally surrounded with like-minded people. These people share their ideas, thoughts and way of life with you and in turn you find yourself open to new things; things you would never have thought about, things that open you to new experiences. It is a constant learning adventure. So, who would have ever thought that I would have found myself floating for 60 minutes in a giant pod filled with water and 1,000 pounds of salt? Not me! Well, that is just what I did this morning and let me just tell you how amazing it was. Well, first, let me tell you what it is. Float Pod Therapy was designed to:

  • Decrease pain
  • Help with sleep issues
  • Decrease stress
  • Improve psychological issues
  • Improve muscular recovery

I was lucky enough to win a session at Reconnect Chiropractic & Holistic Center through my dear friend and owner Theresa Buede. You start with warm shower to rinse off any perfumes or lotions and then into the pod you go! With all the salt in there it truly “floats” you. It is almost like what I would imagine floating in space is like. You are kind of suspended. At first I thought to myself; “I cannot do this for an hour, it feels weird”. Well, that only lasted about 5 minutes. Once I found a position that felt good (my hands floating above my head) I just closed my eyes and “shut down”. Before I knew it I was almost asleep and the world stopped. Talk about relaxation! I could feel all the sensations in my muscles and the tension begin to slip away. Even my sinuses began to clear! When Theresa knocked on the door (and I did not hear it at first because my ears were under the water) I could not believe my hour was over and was a bit disappointed. Let’s face it, I had a hard week and to feel that stress and muscle fatigue slip away was like heaven on a Friday. I am looking forward to the next few days and seeing how I feel. I am confident my muscles will be less sore, my sinuses will stay clear and my stress will stay at bay (at least for a few days). I am a fan! Who knew all the benefits of salt? Remember I went to the salt spa in August. Amazing! Go see Theresa at Reconnect Chiropractic & Holistic Center. You will not be disappointed! They have so much to offer besides the amazing Float Pod. Take care of you!
